Cedar Point’s Steel Vengeance Shuts Down On First Day
Things didn't go as planned on Saturday for Cedar Point's new 'Steel Vengeance' roller coaster. The world’s first “hyper-hybrid” roller coaster opened to the public on Saturday and then shut down to the public as well. According to a report from WILX, around 1:30pm on Saturday, a returning train lightly bumped a parked train at the loading station causing the ride to be temporarily shut down. Officials say that four people requested a review by the park’s First Aid team and then returned to the park. Also, the good news for roller coaster fans is that Steel Vengeance reopened Saturday night. Click here for more info.
Steel Vengeance combines a steel track with a wooden structure which makes it a "hybrid coaster". It features a 90-degree initial drop and 200-foot dive at the start and lasts about 2 and a half minutes.
